The Anenemy is a naturally-spawning object exclusive to Don't Starve Together, introduced in Return of Them. It is found on the Rocky Beach and Lunar Archipelago biomes of the Lunar Island.

If a player or mob walks over an Anenemy, it will trigger and deal 60 damage to anything on top of it and close itself for around 1 minute. The Anenemy has unlimited durability, but unlike the Tooth Trap the player cannot reset it.

Closed Anenemies can be dug up with a Shovel, giving an Anenemy Trap, which can be picked up and replanted elsewhere, spawning a closed Anenemy at the chosen spot.

Prototype.png Tips

  • The Anenemy can not be set on fire so it is a great way to kill Fire Hounds.
  • Anenemies are excellent at mass producing Spider drops. Placing multiple Anenemies around a Spider Den will kill multiple spiders. Provided the player is capable of extracting the drops from the Anenemies, one can amass silk with little work.
  • Combine this with Bunnymen, walls and perhaps some bait (along with clever placement), you can create a fully automatic Bunnyman farm.


  • The Anenemy was introduced in the Turn of Tides update.
  • "Anenemy" is a pun on sea "anemone" and "an enemy".
  • A dug out Anenemy left on the ground appears to be breathing.
